On February 10th, 2018, Icelandic composer and experimental musician Jóhann Jóhannsson has died at age 48 in Berlin.
His last solo album, Orphée, was released in 2016 and it’s one of the most beautiful works of modern classical music of the last years. This was the tenth and final full-length album of his career. Jóhann Jóhannsson, however, was also a renowned and appreciated composers of movie soundtracks. Among his best works we may mention Sicario, Arrival and The Theory of Everything, for which he won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score.
The sadness is great, he was probably at the highest point of his career and the only thing that at this moment can comfort us is that his creations remain with us to keep his memory alive.
I’ve assembled in short time a compendium of the best works from Jóhann Jóhannsson. This one-hour compilation collects both some songs from his solo works and some tracks from his best soundtracks. It is my little tribute to a great artist.
